Course Description: Working with youth in any discipline is understandably challenging when you consider this population’s consistently evolving and malleable cognitive process. This interactive 2-hour webinar will incorporate an ecological perspective in understanding dynamics that may form the adolescent ‘worldview.’ Neurological functions that form emotional context and influencing factors that premediate behavior will be discussed. The content will also include strategies to help engage and support healthy development using effective approaches and interventions in health care, behavioral health, or school settings.
